Easy Asian Chicken Thighs

(2 Votes)
35 Min

This tasty chicken dinner recipe will make you feel like a winner every time you serve it. Our Easy Asian Chicken Thighs are juicy and cooked in a sauce that combines some of our favorite, flavorful, Asian ingredients. The sauce is so good, you'll want to pour it over everything!

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 10 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil until moderately hot. Add the chicken and cook until brown on all sides, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic and red pepper to the chicken; cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain off excess fat.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, honey and ginger; add to the chicken. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and fully cooked.


Serve with rice. When cooked, the garlic becomes mellow and is not overpowering. However, if you prefer, you can start with 2 garlic cloves and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper. Adapt it to your own taste.
